Tuition is due on the first school day of each month. After the 10th day of the month, a late fee of $20 will be added and a late invoice will be received. Thank you for your prompt payments. Tuition can be paid yearly, or bi-yearly. Checks can be written to The Little Red School House.
Failure to pay tuition by the 20th of the month, without payment arrangements, may result in the inability to continue attendance at The Little Red School House. Additional charges for late payments may occur.
While this is a private school, I do follow the Weber School District calendar. It seems to be easier for most families, especially those with older children. Please be aware of our school calendar, which is listed here, and is detailed, in each monthly newsletter. M/W/F students will attend at least 90 days and T/Th students will attend at least 63 days.
Does my child need to be potty trained? What should I do if my child is sick?
Please have your child learn how to take care of ALL bathroom duties BEFORE school starts. Children have to be potty trained to be at school! If an accident does occur, we will call you.
If your child is sick, PLEASE keep your child at home so others won’t become ill. I will call you to pick up your child if they are sick at school. Be sure all immunizations are up to date. If your child is going to miss class, you may want to call, text or email me so we are not waiting for them.
Children that have had a good night sleep, breakfast or lunch, and a HUG are happier in school!
What will the children learn?
Off we go to Nursery Rhyme Land, and who do you think we’ll see? All the folks from Nursery Rhyme Land will teach us our ABC’s!
The curriculum for this year will revolve around 26 different rhymes. We will make pages for our nursery rhyme art binders and our ABC booklets.
We will learn music, rhyming, sign language, colors, shapes, math, matching, opposites, phonics and sounds, science, games, cooking, art and much more….all connected to the rhyme and letter of the week! The children love to learn the nursery rhymes and will quickly memorize them.
At the end of the year, each of the children will be able to dress up as their favorite character for a fun party. You may want to plan and talk about this through the year!
Each child will have a binder to save their special ABC Nursery Rhyme Art. They will be able to bring their binders home occasionally to share with you. Please have your child return them on the NEXT school day, so that more pages can be added. At the end of the year, the children will keep them as a fun scrapbook of their pre-school year!
We will also have a special unit that is traditional at the Little Red School House. 3 year olds will study Things that Go! And 4 year olds will explore the world studying different countries.
How do you celebrate my child’s birthday?
We will celebrate each child’s birthday on their special day or on their 1/2 birthday. (If they have a summer birthday). Students can send a birthday treat to share with their classmates. We discourage cupcakes and donuts with frosting and sprinkles. Cookies, popsicles, fruit roll ups, etc. are much better.
